Since prominent women in the LDS Church should not talk about, mention, discuss or even make oblique reference to anything having to do with the kitchen, cooking, food and anything like unto it out of danger of casting all women into the role of June Cleaver, BCC is offering a new politically correct Book of Recipes Approved For Discussion by Mormon Women Approved by Accredited Feminists Who Know More Than You Do About How You Should Do Your Job (Just Ask Us):

This is the only recipe book suitable for any woman in the Church who holds any calling whatsoever and make any pretense at pretending to entertain the notion of perhaps, maybe, sort of being anything more than shackled to the stove. So, you can cook and be really good at it, and charitably serve others by it, but do not talk about it.

And, the next time you decide to write up a little article in a magazine that pretty much nobody reads or subscribes to (is there even a print version of "Meridian"?) and has no affiliation to the LDS Church, don't you dare point out you are woman, who has an English degree and uses it to publish recipe books and talk about obscure and rarely discussed historical facts regarding prominent historical women who have exhibited Charity through cooking or KHH will violently lacerate you with her ever increasing, undoubtably righteous indignation over pointing out these women...heaven forbid...loitered anywhere in the vicinity of a stove, cooking range or domestic installation of any kind, perceived or real.

We might suggest BCC add one recipe to their tome. This recipe is RIGHT ON.

Update: The comments on this post have taken this one from bad to worse. Watch Kaimi put his pro-feminist street cred on the line to attack Kristine's position as payback for leaving T&S some months ago. Ugly, and not in a "sweet spirit" kind of way either. Also, while Steve may be waiting for some Apostolic Cinnamon Sugar cookies, be sure not to miss this awesome recipe, sure to be a hit at your next ward function.

Here is another recipe, I will call it the BCC Bomb:

6 ounces of piss
1 ounce vinegar
Dash of self-righteousness

Serve in highball with ice, garnish with slice of lemon and a splinter from the beam in their eye.

Where's the MEN'S cookbook? It's fine for women to be shackled to the stove, but when a MAN wants to cook, he's called a big sissy pants. Where's the equality?

I think these ladies write stuff just so you'll snark them.

Wow! A vinegar cocktail, eh? Hmmm...

Aw, feminist cook! I LOVE to cook! And the eating=also fun, though without the piss.

Funny, I lived on a commune years ago with a bunch of other granola-crunching liberal wackos such as myself, and I was the cook. Nobody ever thought I did it 'cuz I was an oppressed Mormon chic. They just liked my baklava :). They even came to my mission farewell and sang (possibly traumatizing my congregation when they walked through door, but their version of "Amazing Grace" seemed to smooth over the disparity in appearance.

Millie: my DH makes way better wheat bread than I do. I don't care if that makes him a sissy pants--it's yummy :). He evens things out by owning lots of power tools.
